Tamiflu Supply Running Low? Try a Hot Toddy

Posted By on Mon, Jan 13, 2014 at 8:14 AM

I have failed you, Bitesters. I went and let National Hot Toddy Day slip up on me without notifying you that it was actually last Saturday, Jan. 11. Fortunately, even if you failed to celebrate formally, it's never too late to whip up a nice warm cup of spirits to boost your spirits when you might have a touch of the ague.

Hot toddies have a long history in the world of cocktails as well as a wide variety of recipes that usually revolve around brandy, whiskey or rum mixed with lemon and a sweetener, often honey. More modern iterations include the addition of spices or hot tea, and frankly, these are all positive developments to what was already a pretty fine concoction.

But if you want to whip up an old standard, here's a recipe from Tullamore D.E.W Irish Whiskey, a product that's been around since 1829. Word is the polar vortex is supposed to take another dip south before this month is over, so you might want to keep this recipe handy.



2 ounces Tullamore D.E.W. Original
1/4 ounce Simple Syrup (1 part sugar/1 part water)
1/4 ounce Fresh Lemon Juice
6 ounces Hot Water

Mix all in a mug or Irish Coffee cup and stir to combine. Garnish with a lemon wheel and cinnamon stick or feel free to add some fresh ginger or infuse the simple syrup with seasonal flavors like cinnamon, orange, apple or ginger.

This will surely cure what ails you!
